Will stop taking Tamoxifen after 10 yrs

I have taken Tamoxifen for 3 yrs (after my surgery, chemo & radiations), followed by 5 yrs of Aromasin and then back to Tamoxifen for 2 more yrs.

My oncologist told me that I can now stop taking Tamoxifen bec latest studies suggest that after 10yrs there are no advantages.

Has anyone stopped taking Tamoxifen cold turkey? Any side effects?

Was told that there could be bleeding but I do not have a uterus (still have ovaries) - I am post-menopausal and am concerned about possible side effects from stopping Tamoxifen. Has anyone else had a similar experience
